The Container-Based Applications Reference Architecture  guides the use of container based applications (CBAs) at the UW. Recommendations are provided regarding:

  • Scenarios in which CBAs are recommended

  • Team readiness, roles, and responsibilities for using CBAs

  • Effective and safe configuration of container clusters (such as accounts, clusters, pods, services, and networking)

  • Design of container based applications in different scenarios

  • Use of an effective pipeline for changes to applications and clusters

The intended audiences for this reference architecture are:
